in algeria when they took over the hostages. but in 2009 they tried to blow up an aircraft over the city of detroit when they were landing on christmas day, which was a very real, very serious event and but for a quarter of an inch, that device would have gone off, killing hundreds on the airplane and who knows how many hundreds on the ground. it was a very densely populated. so they are still under attack. we should be able to go after and get after those folks overseas so they don't get here. jenna: your point is well-taken. the beginning and end to the war on terror is challenging to say the least. i want to just quickly get your thoughts on this because we've talked a great deal in the past about your feelings about this administration leaking information to the press on highly classified, highly classified situations and serious operations like the bin laden raid. how concerned are you that a man you've often criticized being at the center of some of these leaks, john brennan, may be the nation's top spy? >> for the record, i never said that john brennan was the center of the leaks.

dating back, that the u.n. represent i have to syria describes cities that looks like cities of berlin back in 1945. he has 60,000 syrians dead and 700,000 refugees going up to million that can collapse jordan and lebanon. then you've got inside syria the rise of al-qaeda linked forces as part of that opposition. this is something that hillary clinton herself warned about a few days ago. by not stepping in, everyone agrees that say sad is going to go but we have not stepped in to shape the opposition and not only a viable force but a force that is valuable instead of al-qaeda linked. >> chris: but we don't know that necessarily they would topple assad or al-qaeda still wouldn't have a big role, but it raises the question. here you have panetta, dempsey, clinton, petraeus the entire national security team saying arm the rebels and the white house said no, why do you think not? >> and saudi arabia, britain, france and qatar they understood the importance. i think the president does not like to intervene in these kinds of things. i think also during an election he understood that the publ
way tonight in new orleans. alex is joining us next from new york city. caller: my comment is -- i am not particularly a sports fan. it seems very repetitive back and forth. as far as the regulation -- my observation, not just about football but hockey and also even baseball -- people seem to like people getting hit and getting beat up. they even like people looking kind of distorted like when they take drugs. i would be in favor if there could be a lot to prevent head injuries or young people being persuaded to do drugs to get onto teams or whatever. it is my commentary to my fellow americans the sunday morning that, it is like gladiatorial combat. . "the hunter games." it is almost like a freak show you enjoy watching human suffering. that is my cheery comment. host: thank you for the call. on the twitter page, there is this. back in 2009, tiki barber testified on the issue of head injuries at the high school and professional lover -- level.

of defense when you look and say in a benghazi or, you know, i don't want to go city by city for obvious security reasons. when you look at them, how often do you determine we'll take a look this week and see where with e are security wise. i know, state is a big part. >> the best thing we did is state asked us to join a team that would look at security at 19 embassies and determine what was needed there in order to better secure those facilities. and i think based on that, it gives us the opportunity to then demy additional -- additional marine if we have to take additional steps to make sure that those embassies are not vulnerable. so we do work with the state department when asked to try to help provide some guidance with regards to security. >> how often is a review done in some of these places, for instance, a benghazi. do they -- is it on a -- when the ambassador says, things are getting tougher, or every couple of weeks is it looked as it is deor ituated or gotten better. what kind of matrix is used? >> well, you know, look. the primary -- the primary matrix for that has to rest w
of the very practices under shaken by the city units that you once operated. for example, as treasury secretary he would be responsible for coordinating implementation of the so-called looker rules, which is intended to separate proprietary trading from the federally insured financial activities. you stated that you support the rule, and yet you were the chief operating officer for the units engaged in the sort of the activities the rule was meant to prevent. therefore if you were to be confirmed it could lead to an awkward situation in which your role as the chair of the fsoc from tester of the fsoc coming to effectively saying to the financial firms do as i say, not as i did. now these are not trivial matters. indeed, they bear directly on your qualifications to serve as the next treasury secretary. if the committee was given time to examine the record more thoroughly before today's hearing, i'm sure many of the questions that have already been answered. we have to explore some of these matters here today. finally, i just want to mention that when we met the nomination i told you th
, a city budget, a state budget that didn't account for the interest you have to pay every year? how ridiculous is that? that's the kind of phony, gimmicky accounting that makes -- puts this country on a path to financial crisis. that's what he said, but even then by that definition, it was not true, and this would not be true, and it's false. well, well, phony accounting procedures, these budget manipulations and gimmicks like this primary balance idea is the way politicians have maneuvered us into a situation that our path is so dangerous. the american people are not happy about it. they should not be happy. there is no reason we have placed this country at such risk because of debt and spending, no reason that we should do that. they sent us here to this congress for a lot of reasons, but the primary reason really is to probably manage their money, manage their program. and so, madam president, i see my colleague from vermont and i think we may get there a different way, but i think we may share some of the same views about this nomination, and i respect his independence and gumpt

snowstorms ever. as much as three feet are expected in some places like the city of boston. that's where correspondent molly line is tonight, out in the thick of it. good evening, molly. >> reporter: good evening, john. this is expected to pick up over the course of the night. we've seen the snow steadily rising and the winds picking up a lot. one of the biggest things happening in boston, history in the making. this hasn't happened for decades. they've actually shut down the highways here. the governor asking everyone to stay off the roads all across the state as of 4:00 in the afternoon. you can still see a few cars and moving around out here. essential what the governor has sworded through disek order is r is all non-essential vehicles off the roads. there's a sign that says that. if they catch people out here, they could possibly be fined and spend up to a year in jail. that means that you can still be a hospital employee and you can still go to work and be a snow plow driver. anybody else should be safe at home by now. that's the order of the governor, and also the mayor of boston h
city. we have got to be more comfortable in talking to people about what works. what is working that other countries are doing. the diversity of the representation in the house will be helpful for that. i think also we have to learn something from how historically brave actions by your predecessors in this caucus played out in the electorate. when were they rewarded? when were they punished? and later rewarded? i cannot tell you how many nights in the white house, every single night before i went to bed, for months and months and months after the 1994 election, i thought about the people who were defeated because they voted for the economic program, because they voted for the assault weapons ban. i knew exactly what happened. i thought a lot about those who survived and why they did. as you look ahead and you decide, what are we going to do about the budget, what are we going to do about having the democrats branded as the party of jobs and innovation for the future? make no mistake about it, the republicans will try very hard not to make it as easy for you to win by-reference.
economic growth, while contributing to america's energy independence. for instance, the los angeles city council approved a 25 year $1.5 billion project to buy a solar power produced at the indian nation in the southern nevada desert. when it goes online in 2016, it will be the largest solar power plant on tribal land. capturing race to power over 118,000 los angeles homes. in addition to the plan itself, over 900,000 solar panels will be built on a reservation, creating more jobs in industries that tomorrow. one way to ensure projects like this is to promote fair, equitable tax policy. like all government, tribes must collect and manage their own taxes. right now, tribal governments don't have the same taxing authority by states. a flock of governments, we will continue working with federal partners to fix these policies have the economies grow and become a source of strength and her family of nations. sovereignty is how we secure communities and how they can secure nations and how we will secure future. this is our greatest challenge. a quarter of people in poverty, traced the national
